Fly and security screens are not only good for the keeping unwanted intruders and insects out, they can also save you money. What’s more, they’re particularly good for the environment too. Let’s take a look.
Letting the fresh air in
How many times have you tried to keep the doors and windows open in the height of the summer only to be confronted by a swarm of bugs that just so happen to be entering your home at will? In all probability you resort to closing the said doors and windows and cranking up the A/C. You’ll have heard that fresh air is good for us, but what you might not know is that by letting in gentle breezes it keeps harmful pollens circulating so they’re far less likely to settle in your home. Insect and security screens promote a more healthy environment for you to live in.
Reduces the need for A/C
Speaking of letting breezes in, by doing so it reduces the need for air conditioning. In fact another much cheaper and eco-friendly way to cool your house is to use ceiling fans instead. They take the cooler air that’s produced by opening the doors and windows and make it flow evenly around the home. It’s this continual movement of air that cools us down, not the degrees of coldness.
Eradicates the need for insect repellents
What do you do when a hoard of nasty looking insects enter your home? Reach for the trusty insect repellent of course! That’s all well and good as you’ll probably kill the intruders but the overpowering and often unpleasant smell left behind by the repellent is usually something that can only be described as nauseating. That’s not to mention the gargantuan sized hole you’ve just punched in the ozone layer. At Down Under Screens we fit heavy duty screening meaning your premises will stay insect free for much longer this negating the need for insect repellent.
Increases the value of your property
Insect and security screens don’t have to be big and cumbersome. On the contrary many fit in perfectly with the building that they’re attached to. It’s thought that many people choosing to buy a property are more likely to opt for one that has screening attached, as it’s an extra expense that they don’t have to purchase. In some cases it’s a relatively small investment that can even add value to your home.
Our insect screens are made from aluminium framing. The good thing about aluminium is that while being both strong and lightweight, it’s also mostly made from recyclable material so it’s good for the environment.
